The Neighborhood Handler and Hot Date
A few problems exist when restoring back-ups made without down-town area to The Sims with Hot Date installed...

The problem is that the down-town area won't be accessible on those neighborhoods. I'll be working on a fix which I will release as soon as possible. Until then, here's how you can manually fix it:

- Open My Computer then C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\Template\Userdata\Houses (replace C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\ with wherever you installed The Sims to. This is the default location)
- Select the "DTDesc.iff" and the "house21.iff" to "house30.iff" files.
- In the menu at the top, click Edit, then Copy.
- Go to C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\ and then open the UserDataX folder (where X is the number of the neighborhood).
- Go to houses.
- Click Edit, then Paste

The default down-town files are now copied, and the down-town area should be accessible again in this neighborhood.

If you're still having problems after this, don't hesitate to e-mail me.
